Back to All Events

Meet the Author: Carolyn Sloan


We are thrilled to welcome award-winning author and musician Carolyn Sloan to the bookstore for an evening of jazz, stories and merriment! She’ll take questions and sign books following the presentation for Welcome to Jazz, as well as show off her skills on one of her own jazz instruments.

In this interactive swing-along picture book with 12 sound chips, you’ll hear the instruments of jazz—the rhythm section with its banjo, drums, and tuba, and the leads, like the clarinet, trumpet, and trombone. And you’ll hear singers scat, improvising melodies with nonsense syllables like be-bop and doo-we-ah!

The book is recommended for readers ages 4 and up, but the event is perfect for music lovers of all ages!
